Dos and don’ts

It is a privilege to be asked to help arrange a funeral for a family member or friend and it’s important to take your time and get it right. To make the role easier we have compiled a short list of Dos and Don’ts that will assist.

  • DO
    have a notepad beside your phone
  • DO
    make notes of what you have done
  • DO
    ask for assistance
  • DO
    make sure you understand what people are talking about
  • DO
    write down calls that have to be returned
  • DO
    make sure you understand everything you sign

  • DON’T
    be ashamed to have to ask for financial assistance
  • DON’T
    be rushed into anything you do not understand.
  • DON’T
    Make any decisions about wills or estates until you can think clearly.
  • DON’T
    be ashamed to show your feelings. If you want to cry then do it, if you want to scream or yell, do it.
  • DON’T
    let anyone remove any personal belongings. Do it yourself when you are ready.
  • DON’T
    be afraid to accept help when offered. Remember you may be able to repay the help some other day.
